Moderate Exercise
instituteforbetterbonehealth posted:
Harvard researchers found that postmenopausal women who sit for long stretches of time have an increased risk of sudden death.

Another report published in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health and reported by CBS News showed that every extra hour spent sitting doubles the risk of disability for seniors.

Moderate exercise and daily activities performed twenty minutes a day, or one hour three times a week, reduces these risks and is amazingly helpful for bone, heart, and brain health.
